The time has come for me to start putting together my summer reading list! Like last year, I’ll probably deviate extensively from it, and hopefully manage to complete at least half of the books on it.
I’ve noticed that my list has a couple of themes, being either Italian focused (or influenced by my stay in Florence) or dystopian. And some are just random.
Inferno–Dante (finish reading!)
1984–George Orwell (reread)
Brave New World–Alduos Huxley (reread)
Fahrenheit 451–Ray Bradbury (definite reread–I read this once, in the seventh grade)
The Shining– Stephen King
Let the Right One In–John Lindqvist
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest–Ken Kesey
Any other suggestions? I recently read a couple of really poorly composed books and need to purge my mind of the awful taste.
In some cases, like 1984, Brave New World and Fahrenheit 451, these are books that I read for school years ago. Now that I’m older (and perhaps a little wiser), I hope to get something more out of them, and just enjoy them without having to worry about needing to remember details for exams and essays.
